Beachside Beauty -- Stellar Surfside Studio

Studio Details

Upscale comfort makes your getaway stellar at the cleanest resort on the beach: Top of the Gulf. For couples and small families who like a smaller complex versus a megaplex, this is it.

Our studio was completely remodeled and redesigned in early 2020. With a shiplap ceiling, gorgeous decor and a corner kitchen with all new granite and full size appliances, this is one of the most gorgeous condos in the resort. Ideal for 1-4 guests with two queen beds, a large flat screen TV w/HD service, dining table for 4 and more. One entire end of the studio is a bay window which opens so you can enjoy seeing and hearing the surf and sand. The bathroom is gorgeous and features a walk in, tiled shower and granite counters.

While there is no private balcony, each floor of the resort features a large, communal balcony with comfy chairs.

Top of the Gulf features a gorgeous pool, immaculate landscaping, and pristine beachside amenities. A Surf Snack Shack offers treats at the ready, or grills are available to make your own. Coolers are welcome poolside as well. From March to October, we offer complimentary beach chair service: two chairs and umbrella on the beach every day of your stay.

For more fun, the game room boasts a pool table and a fuse ball table, and pool area features a shuffleboard court that also offers cornhole boards. A large swing and an oversized Adirondack chair add to the beachy atmosphere, and the internet cafe is poolside with dedicated wifi internet in a shaded space.

A book of menus from our favorite restaurants will help you choose where to dine and what activities to enjoy (rain or shine). Complimentary starter sizes of items like shampoo, conditioner, soaps and paper goods help get your trip going.
